of the conflict, listen to what israel's president, shimon peres, tells me about the looming threat of all-out war. you do believe, mr. president, that a ground war may be inevitable? >> well, i hope that we achieve cease-fire. the negotiations are still being continued. it's difficult for all parties, but it's not over and the best choice for all of us is to stop shooting. >> you'll hear more from that exclusive interview in a moment. we begin with cnn's arwa damon live in gaza city. arwa, i had a fascinating conversation with president peres earlier. he's still saying that it could go either way but what is your sense on the ground about the likely prospects of a cease-fire and how long will the israelis give it before committing to a possible ground offensive? >> reporter: the likelihood of a cease-fire seems to be increasingly elusive the longer this does drag on, and all through the night, we have been hearing the sound of air strikes, some of them have actually shook the building that we're standing in. we have also been seeing rockets continuously being fired from gaza city, from the center

of this is the involvement of iran. i interviewed shimon peres yesterday, who was very firm about iran have been training and tooling hamas, financing them, supplying them with their long-range rockets and so on. do you think all that is entirely accurate? do you believe that iran, from everything you're gleaning on the ground there, is as involved as the israelis believe? >> well, certainly. you look at the sophistication of some of these weapons now that hamas and groups like islamic jihad has access to, they are far more sophisticated than when i was last here in 2008-2009, when israel was last engaged on the ground here. back then, and ben has spent a lot more time here in the region and has seen the fact, you know, the impromptu factories that were making rockets. i spent time in ashkelon last time i was here and the rockets didn't have much accuracy. they didn't have much range. now you have the rocket which comes from iran, the components come from iran, are smuggled through a pipeline, through sudan, said to be through egypt as well, and taken apart, brought through the tunnels from egypt and rea

with shimon peres before the agreement and the secretary of state hillary clinton. he was hopeful -- he wasn't confident, 100%, this it was going to be achieved. he did say that no one really wants israel to go in on the ground. the israelis don't want to do that. the palestinians certainly in gaza don't want to do that. he was very, very complimentary to the egyptian role in this, and he praise the the egyptian president mohammed morsi for stepping up and taking the responsibility, doing the responsible thing in speaking and dealing with hamas and getting close to an agreement. there's been -- as far as can i tell so far, no official statement yet from the israelis government confirming all of this, but it's been widely occupied that despite that bus bombing earlier in the day in tel aviv, it looks like this deal has been put forward. there's no doubt that the secretary of state, she's announce it together with the egyptian government, the government of president mohammed morsi. they wouldn't be announcing it until prime minister netanyahu had signed off on this. we're also told that presid

to exist, you see on the one hand a reality where president morsi sends a letter to shimon peres and after shimon peres's office releases the letter, and there's a backlash from the muslim brotherhood, president morsi comes out and denies that he sent the letter. it is never a really good sign when you deny a fact. either in a sense your politics or your ideology don't permit you to acknowledge a fact. when the, when 16 egyptian soldiers killed in the sinai, the muslim brotherhood's first response was to accuse the mossad of doing it obviously not true. obviously having to create a reality that is an alternative reality. not a good sign. it's true president morsi didn't say that but the muslim brotherhood did say that. a couple weeks ago the supreme guide of the muslim brotherhood body called all jews are corrupt and called for jihad and only thing israelis understand is violence. when there was backlash from the other side, the muslim brother came out and said he didn't say it. when you have to deny reality says something about the durability of your belief system. says something about yo
